LibriVox recording of PARIAH PLANET, by Murray Leinster.
Read by Phil Chenevert
When the blue plague appeared on the planet of Dara, fear struck nearby worlds. The fear led to a hate that threatened the lives of millions and endangered the Galactic peace. But the Med Service ship Aesculapius 20 with Calhoun and Murgatroyd the Tormal aboard are on the job and have stumbled into the horrible mess caused by unreasoning hatred, quarantine, mass starvation and serious bureaucratic screw ups. Calhoun must use all his medical knowledge and significant skills to even understand the situation here in neglected Sector 12. Can he and Murgatroyd untangle this Gordian's knot and live to tell the tale? Maybe and maybe not. Listen and find out. (Summary by Phil Chenevert )

I think the matter-of-fact attitude of the main character is the best aspect of the story. He just sighs and says, here we go again. Cheep cheep!
The story is fun, interesting, and a great bit of human interest wrapped in a sci-fi. I loved it!
